Additional helpful PowerShell Modules have been added that can be used to convert PowerShell consolehost history.txt and Usage Logs files to CSV, which can then be ingested into a tool like Timeline Explorer for analysis. Lastly, multiple new NirSoft tools had Modules created for them, as found here.
